What's the plan if Romney gets the nomination on first convention ballot? I'm still voting for Ron Paul in 2012. What about you?

I'm still working the delegate strategy, but nobody but Ron Paul for POTUS.

Ron Paul or No One at All!

Ron Paul or No One at All!

Doesn't get any more clear than that!

If he's not on the ballot, and I can't write him in, there isn't a single other candidate who has earned my vote. (That includes Gary Johnson!)

Stop feeding the propaganda machine. Turn off your TV.

It was over after Iowa

I knew Ron Paul wasn't going to win after Iowa so I stopped giving him campaign donations. I didn't feel like wasting my money anymore.

I will be voting for Romney because I realized that Obama is a racist.

You guys can't talk about write ins all you want. Just like the actual votes in the primaries, the votes won't be there. Ron Paul gets a lot of people to go to his rallies but for some reason people don't vote for him. I expect the same from a write in campaign that will be non existent.

We must do as Nassin Taleb

We must do as Nassin Taleb and support Ron no matter what his chances are because he is the best. We are giving too much power to the media and giving up our right to get the president we want. No matter if hi wins or loses the nomination Ron Paul has my full support.

Make your vote count

To vote for Romney for such a lame reason and to stop donating to Dr Paul is what the media and elite are relying on. I am from the UK and I have found a way to donate a little. The world is watching the USA. Voter fraud is the reason Dr Paul did not win IOWA and some of the other states. Research voter fraud and you will see. You are there - do some research and get involved and stop complaining. Romney will only win because of Goldman Sachs money and people giving up their principles and dreams to keep all the parasites in power and accepting crumbs in return. You once were a free nation, but you gave it all up a bit more each time you vote for the candidate and party(ies) that keep the circus going.


Lots of blogging

For someone who's given up.
I pulled that deal in 08 and pinched my nose and cast a vote for McLame, the establishment guy then. I felt sick afterwards . Soooo, Never again will I waste my vote. A vote w/o confiction is a wasted vote.

Don't bother

Obomney versus Rama is Goldman Sachs versus Goldman Sachs. There is no significant difference between Slick Willard and Marat. If you vote for either one there will be blood on your hands.

Let me get this right. You

Let me get this right. You are willing to waste your vote on Romney but not willing to "waste" your money on RP. BTW, I don't totally disagree with your other points. For this reason, the time is now for RP to run third party. If he does that your vote will truly count, either in the short term of long term.

I spent a lot of money on RP

I spent a lot of money on Ron Paul. I don't think it's worth it anymore. He's not going to win. His message is out already and I look forward to his son running for president in the future.

The best thing that Ron Paul did was get a lot of his followers to run for certain offices around the country.

Let me confess. I never

Let me confess. I never supported him because I thought he was going to "win." To me, that would have been a miracle. I am in it to build a movement that will win in the future, much like Goldwater did in 1964. I've been involved in libertarianism since the 1970s and I can assure you that we have never been closer to that goal than now. RP is the chief reason and the time has never been better to lay the foundations for a powerful third party.

Again, I agree that RP's continued involvement in the GOP race at this point makes little sense (though I wish GOP entryists well). I hope RP either runs himself and fully backs someone else who will, probably Johnson.

Check it out..

Paul has been my President

since 2007. I'll just be re-electing him.

Freedom and Liberty aren't prizes to be won.
They are paths to be taken.

We are not going to allow him to ever get the nomination 2012

That would just be more of the same we are taking back our country.



"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."
-Ron Paul

What an asinine waste of time this question!?

Here we are in the middle of the fight of our lives and you ask your buddy desperately climbing to the top of the hill amidst a hail of fire, what he is going to do if he does not make it?!?

If you have time to write this, you are not helping us win the nomination! All it will take to loose ultimately, is that one second wasted!

End of story!

Focus patriots!

A fair and reasonable question

Not everyone has the time (or money) to become a delegate. The delegate strategy does seem to be our one great hope, are you yourself involved in the delegate process? Neither does everyone have the the inclination to charge up any hill amidst a hail of fire, if that's you, then God speed.

Many of us are simply doing the best we can to keep food on our tables while still contributing to the campaign in meaningful ways such as donations, outreach etc. Many others are wisely preparing in various ways for every possible eventuality, which starts by asking questions. Why so harsh?

πολλα γαρ πταιομεν απαντες ει τις εν λογω ου πταιει ουτος τελειος ανηρ δυνατος χαλιναγωγησαι και ολον το σωμα

Paul cannot win by write-in, and he does not want to run in the

general election if he doesn't get the GOP nomination is what his staffers are saying now. So, why write in Paul when he would have clearly indicated that he does not want to run as an independent in the general election?

Paul would have opted to stay with GOP and writing his name will not change his mind to be an independent.

I say vote for LP or constitution party - for someone like a Baldwin.


Where does Baldwin stand on

Where does Baldwin stand on the War on Drugs, federal limits on abortion, DOMA, and capital punishment?

Chuck Baldwin?

Baldwin recently withdrew himself from the Montana gubernatorial race, and has said nothing of an independent or third party Presidential bid. A nice protest vote, which is pretty much what a vote for Dr. Paul will be should he fail to get the Republican Nomination.

πολλα γαρ πταιομεν απαντες ει τις εν λογω ου πταιει ουτος τελειος ανηρ δυνατος χαλιναγωγησαι και ολον το σωμα

Thanks for the info. I

Thanks for the info. I wasn't aware of that. I was responding to the gentleman who said he'd like to vote "for someone like Chuck Baldwin."

Because it's the right thing

Because it's the right thing to do. It's what most of us promised to do, and the only thing that will stop voters from voting for evil candiates.

Vote your concience, not the lesser of two evils or however a manipulated systems decides "who you can vote for". You decide that.

I will not vote for Obama. I've voted Republican all my life, but they are nominating cult leaders in an obviously fixed election. They do not have my support or that of any real American.

And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.

Nobody But Paul

Ron Paul is who I want, so I will vote Ron Paul. If he is not on the ballot, I will write him in. If they don't count write-ins, I'm not surprised. Nothing wrong with voting third party, but if you vote third party, they won't count your vote either. Even if 100% of the voters vote third party, the third party would get 3% of the vote when the "official" results come out. Until Americans outlaw electronic voting and restore election integrity, all is for naught.

President Paul

If Dr. Paul does not get the nomination then he will support another candidate and that person should be who we all support. Gary Johnson or someone else we have to wait and see what happens.

If Romney gets the nomination...

...I will still vote for Paul. If Paul decides to endorse someone who has the SAME policies that he does, then I will vote for the one he endorses. Still hoping for a Paul presidency regardless of media manipulation & election fraud. This whole election process has been a win! It has created a generation of people who are wide awake for the present & the future! Paul has accomplished a lot for the American people already!

Which States

Which states allow write in votes that will be counted?
Are there enough states that allow write in votes to cause a possible victory for Ron Paul?

Obama is the worst reason for a president that I've seen in my lifetime. If he's not defeated, that means another 4 years for him to destroy the Constitution and life as we knew it.

Will voting my conscience get rid of Obama?

Catch 22

I think we need the good doctor to tell us what to do should we come up empty.

Some states

Some states have simple requirements where all you have to do is register Ron Paul as a write-in candidate (please check deadlines). Other states require that write-ins reach a threshold before they are counted. Please check your state. There is a thread about this if you search.

Stay focused. Stay on course. Vote Ron Paul. If he is not on the ballot, write-in Ron Paul.

"What if the American people learn the truth" - Ron Paul

I'm leaning in the direction

I'm leaning in the direction of the American Constitution party again. I voted for Baldwin in 08. If Ron is not the nominee I will vote for the Constitution party candidate as long as he measures up. If not then I will vote for the Libitarian party candidate. As long as that candidate is not another Bob Barr.. I can't beleive Paul supporters voted for that idiot in 08.

Vote Ron Paul

If everybody keeps their promise (as Ron Paul has always done) our write-in votes will be counted along with the many "Dems for Paul", Blue Republicans and Independants in the General Election. Ron Paul's number will only grow.

Please stay the course. Stay committed and vote for No One But Ron Paul.

"What if the American people learn the truth" - Ron Paul

I'll stand my ground

and still votes for Paul...

This is why I'm still converting people and convincing them to vote or even write in Ron Paul. Sure if there are about "a few" writing in to have my vote be "wasted". But if 200 Millions people write him in, I want to see how the establishment can laugh at that...

not to mention, voting for someone other than Ron Paul would mean I've committed treason against my own country as I'm electing a politician that I either KNOW will commit and have committed perjury, OR have no idea he will or not...

I hope you realize there won't be 200 million people voting in total, across the entire spectrum of voters.
